Paint Stripping, sometimes called Plastic Blasting, is widely used for removing paint from aeronautical parts before inspection or re-painting. For Paint Stripping, we use Soft blast – Plastic media with sharp edges and low mass, delivered in many sizes, which are approved by practically all airplane companies.
Plastic media is ideal for sensitive removal of numerous layers of paint, with the base surface left untargeted. The Paint stripping process is mostly applied manually, but can also be performed with automatic or robotic applications. It always has to be applied in closed enclosures, equipped with strong ventilation/filtering systems and in circumstances when it is important to remove properly stored deposits extracted from soft abrasives.
